I was at ETI last Thursday and Sarah said they weren't doing tours due to all the construction going on. You got lucky since you're getting a tour!

Those of us who have the chrome wheels and flats wished they had ordered the spare in chrome also, easier to replace. Also a toilet shut off is desirable.

On the new build sheet they list it as Aluminum Rim Package and you get 5. No more having to specify how many you want.

Well, that's convenient. We had to order the aluminum spare.

quick thoughts:

- rotate stove for more counter space
- counter extension by kitchen sink
- additional exterior outlets, depending on your needs/wants

I bet they found that folks mostly ordered all five, and simplified things a bit now for ordering.
